Some programmer thought, "Wouldn't it be cool,
To design a fancier tool!"
So he went to his boss,
and said, "Let's rewrite DOS,
And watch our new cool tool rule!"

And sure enough it soon came to pass,
Windows 9x was truly a blast.
And the whole world agreed,
It was fancy indeed,
And it became popular so very fast.

Cool apps then poured out the door.
32-bit programs galore.
And those users of DOS,
Are now losers lost,
For DOS apps are written no more.

The moral of the story my friends,
Is that yes, there will always be trends.
But you can't please everyone,
So when all's said and done,
Sometimes the trend wins in the end.

(who feels that the "lowest common denominator" sometimes just needs to be left
